“unique, soulful and trippy in the best sense”
Syd Arthur have built an enviable reputation as a band apart from the norm. Warm and nostalgic in asphetic, yet forward thinking and futuristic in their production and songwriting. Formed out of the forest party rave scene in their home county Kent, with a hard-won DIY self-sufficiency, they developed a sound and approach miles beyond their foursquare indie peers. Here was swirling rock with psychedelic textures, guitar-based trance with a funk groove.
Having released 3 outstanding, critically claimed studio albums in the last decade as well as numerous EP’s and a breath taking album re-edit from Amorphous Androgynous, this Canterbury four piece are a cherished stable on the global alternative music scene. Solid achievements including, touring with the likes of White Demin, Yes, The Strokes. Headline tours across the UK, EU and USA. The friendship, support and even remix skills of Paul Weller. Stand out festival performances at Glastonbury Festival, SXSW, Cochella and WOMAD to mention a few. A band well treasured by global music press who continue to receive praise and adoration from the likes of The Guardian, Mojo(album of the week for ‘Apricity’) & Pitchfolk. A versatile band adored by music fans from across the genres.
After the success of record number three Apricity Syd Arthur are back on the road to play tracks old and new to their loyal fanbase. Please get in touch if you would like to be apart of the groups next chapter.
